A Baby For Pree
Neutral Milk Hotel Lyrics


Blistering Pree, all smiling and swollen
Makes babies to breathe
With their hearts hanging open all over the sheets
As soft as beets in some brown dresser drawer

And with bees in her breath and the rest of her ringing
They'll sting through her chest with a force hard and beating
Till wonderfully wet she will get
Until she's soaked inside her clothes

And there is no sorry to be sorry for
For a roll around the floor some afternoon so sound and soft
It made her swallow all her sweat
With every bit of breath she coughs
And when the day it came to pour all her babies
All across the bathroom floor
She will be swimming in them all forever more

Rhapsody Afternoon

I wish this were longer, but the lyrics already say everything that needs to be said. This is a dilemma.

Jack Behrens

Where You’ll Find Me Now is basically an embellished version of this song.

Fair Weather Friends

Rhapsody Afternoon has he ever written anything that wasn’t a dilemma?

Nathan Bartuky

I can't decide if I like this or "Where You'll Find Me Now" more. They're both fantastic and brilliant.

My favorite is both of them together in a different iteration, from Live at Jittery Joe's: watch?v=trn8RIxst0c

[Verse]
Blistering Pree, all smiling and swollen
Makes babies to breathe
With their hearts hanging open all over the sheets
As soft as beets in some brown dresser drawer
And with bees in her breath and the rest of her ringing
They'll sting through her chest with a force hard and beating
Till wonderfully wet she will get
Until she's soaked inside her clothes
And there is no sorry to be sorry for
For a roll around the floor some afternoon so sound and soft
It made her swallow all her sweat
With every bit of breath she coughs
And when the day it came to pour all her babies
All across the bathroom floor
She will be swimming in them all forever more
